Anthony Joshua

The world champion boxer who will be facing his biggest fight yet against Klitschko in April

The British public have always had a massive soft spot for talented heavyweight boxers. In Anthony Joshua they finally have one with huge amounts of both talent and class. Anthony should also be lauded for showing solidarity with Muslims, despite the huge amount of online abuse he knew he’d receive. Open-mindedness and tolerance are British values we must never abandon.

Dele Alli

The young Spurs attacker lighting up the Premier League

Is it possible to be a media-trained footballer, act professionally and still somehow come across as engaging, interesting and intelligent? Ninety-five percent of the Premier League suggests not. Dele Alli is the very welcome exception.

Genuinely one of the most exciting young British cyclists right now. Bradley Wiggins took him under his wing for a reason. Like a lot of younger UK bike riders (Geraint Thomas, Peter Kennaugh), Doull also just seems really likeable.
